Babies and Children
Babies and Children
Baby and child photography is just the best of fun. It takes me back to my own childhood, the fun and laughter of larking about with my siblings and family, and the joy of discovery when I played around with my first camera. That sense of childlike enjoyment of dressing up and posing in front of a camera has never left me and I love sharing it with the families that ask me to provide them with gorgeous portraits of the children. Whether we work outdoors, or in my studio, the session passes in the blink of an eye, the camera clicking away all the time, the child relaxing, chatting, having fun, being themselves, speaking to the camera with their eyes. It really doesn’t feel like work at all!
Family photography is like meeting a host of new friends every time. The challenge sometimes lies in getting all members of the family relaxed and working well together. Once this happens – and it usually does quite quickly – then my task is to capture those exchanges of emotions, those looks and smiles and cuddles between family members that speak silent volumes of their wonderful family relationships. I have a young family of my own, and I am part of a large family (we were six siblings in all!), and I feel rewarded every time the photographs I deliver bring smiles to my clients. Many stay in touch. Many have asked me to share time and again in their special family occasions. I may be working, but this is truly a privilege.
Professional portrait photography and headshots call for a different approach. Here the challenge is to help my client feel relaxed and at ease, to forget that there is a camera and to have them communicate non-verbally to me exactly the message they want to convey to their clients. I am curious, as most artists are curious, and enjoy having my clients share their particular stories with me, whether those stories tell about their business enterprise, or their aspirations as young actors. Together, we build the right portfolio of professional images for their needs.
I care deeply for any dog, cat, horse or rabbit and the connection between owner and pet is incredible to capture on camera! I have 2 cats and 1 dog at home but I'm no stranger to plenty of other farm animals or reptiles.
Maternity and birth
Maternity and Birth
For some, expecting a new baby is the most joyous time of their life, for others it's an uncomfortable and painful period of time. Either way there is no denying that it is a monumentous experience and one that deserves a place in the family album. From maternity portraits to birth photography, I can capture the true essence of your experience and give you ever lasting memories through stunning photographs.
Weddings and Events
Weddings and Events
Capturing your wedding or event on camera is an extremely important role to me and one I take seriously and professionally. I enjoy being able to document your special day exactly how it went with a creative flair so that each image tells your story and narrates the day in images. Please get in touch if you'd like a personal quote and more information on my services.

A Very Warm Welcome
I am passionate about photography. In particular, I love the challenge and the joy of creating unique portrait photographs for people. Portrait photography is highly creative. It means I have to capture the essence of each person in a series of images, and then select the one that best conveys their personality. The challenge often lies in getting to know each of my subjects, their uniqueness, their individuality, their aspirations, in what sometimes feels like a short time. And yet portrait photography, in my beautiful home county of Kent, the Garden of England, is one of my greatest pleasures.
When it comes to portraits and photography services, I will deliver a beautiful selection of high quality images for you to treasure, whatever reason you have for these, and whatever use you put them to. And I will be more than delighted to help you create beautiful, lasting portraits of your children, your family, your friends, your work teams, and most importantly, of yourself.
